How would Sierra be hurt by KQ9 being successful when Sierra has basically abandoned KQ. If Sierra decided to continue the KQ series, would a fan based KQ with a different story line hurt the official game. I can see how Tierra’s games would hurt sales of KQ games if they started selling them again. But a game with a completely original storyline can’t be hurtful to business, can it? I think creating this game is exactly like creating fan fiction. Technically, its copyright infringement but Sierra doesn’t get hurt by it, considering this product isn’t actually competing against its products.
